10 Minutes to A Whole New Horizon
Over the years, the Aurai team has been devoted to finding the best solution for digital eye strain. With the soaring popularity of digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops spreading around the globe, we spend more time looking at screens than ever. The side effects of extended screen time include eye fatigue, dry eyes, and blurred vision.
After years of development, we finally came up with a breakthrough solution - Aurai, water-propelled eye massager dedicated to relief eye fatigue and eye discomfort.
Following the remarkable success of our first model on the crowd-funding campaign, we're coming back with our second project - Rio. Rio primarily focuses on enhancing the functionality and user experience of warm compression on eyes, making it more compact and portable, more comfortable to wear, and most importantly, more accessible and affordable for everyone.
Did you know...
Average Americans spent about 10 hours and 39 minutes a day staring at their digital devices.
Since many of our hobbies and activities are increasingly online, we inevitably spend more time on screens no matter if we are working or entertaining. According to the 2016 Digital Eye Strain Report by the Vision Council, almost 9 out of 10 Americans use digital devices for two or more hours each day. Nearly 60% of Americans use digital devices for five or more hours daily, and 70% of people use two or more devices simultaneously.
From 2012 to 2018, we've increased time spent on mobile media by 130%, and digital eye strain has become more common in modern lives.
All of these findings clearly tell us that we've taken a toll on our eyes. The more time we spend on screens, the more easily our eyes get fatigued which will lead to dry eyes, irritated eyes, blurred vision, related headaches, and poor sleep. These in turn will negatively affect our work and quality of life.
This is exactly where Rio comes in.
Rio achieves water permeability and maintains adequate moisture around eyes without irritation. Whether you had a late night out or have been staring at a screen for hours at work, your strained dry eyes and skin around your eye sockets are worth being moisturized by Rio.
Rio utilizes water circulation and simulated wave pulses to relax muscle tension gently around the eye area while limiting noise to promote relaxation. With its unique water circulation system, Rio literally soothes your eye strain in the most comfortable way.
While other eye massagers utilize rigid vibration, Rio reduces your eye strain without creating any uncomfortable or harmful vibrations. The tender massage provided by Rio will improve your blood circulation and boost metabolism, allowing you to get rid of the eye fatigue cumulated over a day. Just close your eyes and let Rio cradle you to deep relaxation.
The built-in constant temperature system ensures the temperature stays within the designated range, saving you from hassles in replacing hot towels/gel packs. Dual-phase temperature offers optional temperature ranges: Normal 39 – 41°C (102 - 105°F) and High 42 – 44°C (107 - 111°F) to suit different user’s liking.
Whether you need a light rest during a coffee break or seek a deep relaxation after you’ve had a long, tough day, you’ll always find an ideal temperature for yourself. The high-temperature setting works especially well to encourage oil gland production, so your eyes produce more tears to mitigate dry eye discomfort.
We know how delicate and important your eyes are. Traditional eye massagers use a rigid approach with squeezing air compression bags or rolling mechanical metal tips. Rio takes good care of your eyes with a soft, gentle, and skin-friendly eye mask. It's made of medical-grade silicone, it's hypo-allergenic, and it's easy to clean and maintain.
The ergonomically designed water bag comfortably molds to your eye sockets, allowing the temperature to naturally come through to your skin. Water circulates inside the silicone eye mask along with vibration modules, generating wave-like movements that tenderly massage around your eyes.
We’ve successfully shrunk Rio's size from the previous model, making it more compact, lighter, and more portable, so Rio can travel wherever you go. Rio is powered through a micro-USB connection, one of the most widely used connectors in the market.
Other than the AC adapter provided, Rio also works with other power banks or external battery packs with rated output 5v=~2A. As long as you bring the micro-USB cable provided, you'll easily find applicable power sources.
